The former Governor of Massa-

Students Play 
Carillon Daily 

The student carilloneurs will 
hold their first concert on April 
29th at 5:00, playing a combina- 
tion of tuneful French and Eng- 
lish May Day songs. 

This concert is actually only 
one of the many afternoons of 
music that the student carillon- 
eurs have been giving the college 
throughout the year. For the 
first time in Wellesley's history, 
the chimes in Tower have been 
played regularly in the late after- 
noons by Wellesley students. 
Under the direction of Miss Flor- 
ence Risley, Head of House at 
Cazenove, Mrs. Scott, Lecturer in 
Hygiene and Physical Education, 
and Miss Dennis, Associate Pro- 
fessor of French, these students 
have played during the first semes- 
ter on Wednesday and Sunday 
afternoons and during the second 
semester every afternoon except 
Saturday. 

Daily Chimes 

On Mondays, the chimes are 
played by Nancy Bartram '48 and 
Ruth Wick '48, on Tuesdays by 
Elsa Ekblaw '48 and Joan Lan- 
caster '48. on Wednesdays by 
Betty Hart '48 and Nancy Kent 
'48, on Thursdays by Gwendolyn 
Werth '48 and Helen Rise '48, on 
Fridays by Mary-Ann LeBedoff 
'48 and Judith Brown '48, and on 
Sundays by Barbara Chapline '46, 
Joanne Reiman '46, Sarai Golomb 
'47 with Miss Risley, Mrs. Scott, 
and Miss Dennis filling in at odd 
times. 

On weekdays, the carilloneurs 
may play anything that they 
know that seems appropriate. One 
afternoon, the college was amused 
to hear the dignified notes of the 
chimes play "Happy Birthday to 
You" as one carilloneur honoured 
the birthday of a friend. On

Four Students 
Design Murals 
To Adorn Well 

Wellesley traditions will be pic- 
tured in four murals soon to adorn 
the walls of the Well, thanks to 
the four girls who elected Art 
208, Composition. The four large 
panels in the main room of the 
Well will depict Tree Day, Step 
Singing, May Day and Float 
Night. 

The murals will be painted in 
abstract rather than conventional 
form. The Tree Day mural depicts 
the Tree Day Mistress and her at- 
tendants, standing on a green is- 
land in the form of a tree — 
symbol of the tradition. In the 
background are people running, 
led by someone who is clutching B 
spade. In the foreground are spec- 
tators, their heads so much larg- 
er than those of the rest of the 
characters in the mural that some- 
one looking at the picture might 
be standing directly behind them. 
This mural is being painted by 
Sally Russell. '15. 

Other Familiar Scenes 

Barhara Boole, '46, is working 
on the May Day scene, which 
shows the famous senior hoop- 
rolling race and the blotter 
mation. In the middle of the mural 
is the large bridal bouquet award- 
ed to the winner of the race, who, 
according to pre-war tradition, 
would be the first class bride. The 
road sides are lined with people 
cheering the runners. 

The Float Night mural is bi 
painted by Pat Zipprodt, '46, in 
the middle of which are tin 
canoes forming the "W." In the 
■round is a large float bear- 
ing costumed participants in the 
pageant. An exciting crew race is 
also in full swing. In the fore- 
ground are the spectators, wear- 
ing class caps, and looking with 
interest upon the gay display be- 
fore them. 

Step Singing is interpreted by 
Peggy Bonsai, '45. In the middle 
is a giant songleader in cap and 
gown leading a group of singers. 
Slightly below her and on a much 
smaller scale, is the entire step- 
singing scene, picturing the Chapel 
and the singers gathered about the 
steps. In the upper right-hand 
corner is Green Arch, through 
which gowned seniors are march- 
ing, bearing the familar paper 
lanterns. In the background is the 
group of typical spectators. 
Preliminary Work 
Many preliminary sketches had 
to be made before the actual 
painting of the murals began. 
First, the class decided on the 
four scenes, and then each girl 
made several ink-wash drawings. 
The artists with Miss Abbott chose 
to use abstract instead of conven- 
tional scenes because, according to 
Barbara Boole, "We thought the 
style more sophisticated and ap-

Connors Claims Political Ladder 
Not Difficult for Capable Women 

by I maid, 'J,7 



"It is not true that women must 
take a back seat in polil 
Margaret Connors, young Br 
port lawyer, when in 
during her visit to Wellesley last 
Monday. "In I S Connors 

added, "women in politics have a 
definite advantage— there are few- 
er of them." 

Miss Connors, who spoke on 
April 23 at a joint lecture, spon- 
sored by Forum and the Political 
Science Department. graduated 
from Wellesley in 1935. Since re- 
ceiving her degree from Yale Law 
School, she has had not only an 
active law practice, which include - 
her present position as legislative 
counsel for the C.I.O. in Bridge- 
port, but has also found time dur- 
ing the last election to run 
for the position of Congresswoman 
nst her successful opponent, 
Clare Boothe Luce. 

Contrary to the opinion that she 
was chosen to oppose Mrs. Luce 
because she could "hit below the 
when a man could not, Misa 
Connors said that it was the pres- 
sure of the women in the state 
Democratic party which brought 
about her nomination. 

"There were no women included 
on the State ballot, and so natur- 
ally, there had to be a woman on 
the Congressional ballot. The 



women voters were mad by this 

united — for a change," 

she added with a gleam in her 

eye. "That's how I got on the 

I r."

Connors advises this method for

lonnore, be

days. In her Junior year, 
she traveled all over the On

ice Committee. This mi

glory. When Miss Connors joined 
party in Bridgeport, she un- 
dertook more house to house can- 
,ided on election day in 
rod helped 

ning many small but es- 
sential jobs. 

Miss Connors emphasized the 
fact that ■ "Women'. equal 
rights" amendment which is be- 
ing pushed by many women's or- 
ganizations, would invalidate most 
of the labor reforms which have 
been passed daring the last few 
years. If this proposed amend- 
ment is carried through, it will

ceed wi must keep a constant vigilance over 

world affairs, In college we have been given 

i in key to a fund of information. In the world 
we will be given the opportunity to use this 
information. 
The strength of a nation depends upon the 
ngth of it.- people; intellectual strength even 
more than physical strength. The United States 
ha- already shown that it has the physical 
power to overcome its enemies. The time is 
fast drawing near when it musi prove that it 
has the intellectual strength to combat the 
problems which the victory of physioal strength 
has brought. As people with intelligent minds 
it is the duty, ii"t merely the responsibility 
of each Wellesley Btudent to keep herself posted 
on world affaire, to assimilate her information 
and i" form her own opinions from her in- 
formation. Then and only then has she the 
righl in express herself. 



PECULIAR POSITION 

Among the numerous post-wai topics being 
discussed is a topic about us, college women. 
I Iducatow are counting upon us. Industry is 
wondering about us. Rehabilitation experts are 
advising us. We are being discussed because 
voung women and as college students in 
war-time we form mie of the manv peculiarly 
equipped groups which must work together for 
enduring security. International, national, so- 
cial, eoonomic problems will confront every in- 
dividual in our nation; college women will come 
to meet these issues differently prepared than 
any other group. We are being discussed by 
those who hope we will recognize our unique 
position and plan for a constructive contribu- 
tion based upon it. 

We at college now are aware of our privilege 
in being here. More important, we came to 
college and we have stayed in college because 
we realized the great need of our country for 
alert, able individuals. When one is capable 
oi doing something that should be done, he be- 
comes responsible for doing it. Our respon- 
sibility is increased because we have taken this 
time oi preparation. We are learning theorie 
watching world government at work We are be- 
ing encouraged to be alerl and articulate. 
Serein lies our danger. As Dr. Mar- 

ret Mead suggested to Mademoiselle's polit- 
ical forum, women are actually a "psycholog- 
ical minority." We must larrj the torch 

"i democratic ideals ostentatiously. As the 
liberally educated oi ;eneration, college 

women face the possible danger of so overdoing 
their articulateness foi ideals thai veterans will 
consider the ideals themselves feminine 

expressions This may seem a far possibility, 
but it is a thought we insider. If, on 

othei hand, recognizing our peculiar position 
college women, we are ashamed oi these four 
college pears, we will be failing. In putt □ 
all our resoui the disposal oi the world

belongs to each one of us as an 
individual. We cam wriU to our 
Congressman. They are oui rep- 
sentativea in the national govern- 
ment. They are there to receive 
"iii opinions and our letters. How 
can we justifiably criticize them 
for passing laws we don't want 
when most of us turn our faces 
away from the world, when we 
fall down on our duties as citi- 
zens? When you feel strongly 
about some issue that is coming 
up in Congress, sit down, take out 
five minutes, and trnte your ideas 
to your Congress- man. And if you 
don't feel strongly about the mat- 
ters coming up in Congress, stop 
letting your mind slop around in 
bedroom slippers. Read the news- 
paper, listen to the news broad- 
casts and commentators, do some 
thinking, and get some opinions 
of your own. 

World Economy 
Our part in the Bretton Woods 
agreement has to be approved by 
the United States Senate by De- 
cember 81, 1945. The world econ- 
omy depends on our cooperation. 
We have the money and the goods, 
and the rest of the world is wait- 
ing to see how we will handle 
them. If we do not decide to re- 
ject the temptation to form an 
"empire" in this part of the world, 
to take the short term view and 
hold selfishly to what we have and 
may have at the expense of others, 
the rest of the world will turn to 
other methods than Bretton Woods 
to regulate their economies. We 
will work into the strains and 



frictions of after the last war. Ex- 
change controls, trude n 

,i lination, and ot her di

burden is on QUI shoulders. So,

Bretton Woods proposal, not

American Dollars 

Gove 1 1 ii. right down to the 

itom— the function of writing 
to your congressman — is a busi- 
ness of continual vigilance. If you 
want Bretton Woods enough to 
write to your congressman, then 
you must write to him to see thai 
the organization succeeds. Bret- 
ton \\(io. Is will fail unless the 
United States lowers her tariffs 
and lets foreign goods in. We can- 
not loan money to the rest of the 
world, send them goods, and then 
expect them to pay back in cash 
win n we won't give them cash for 
what they are producing. They 
cannot get rights to American dol- 
lars, over a long period of time, 
unless we give them those dollars 
in return for goods they send us. 
They can not send us goods unless 
we lower our tariffs to a point 
where they can afford to sell their 
goods in our markets. Trade is a 
two-way affair. The United States 
is still basking in the game of 
giving all, taking nothing, and 
letting the rest of the world stew 
in its own juice trying to find 
gold to pay their debts. And then 
we go and put the gold in the 
ground in Fort Knox. This cannot 
last. If the Bretton Woods or- 
ganization is to work, and if the 
world is to avoid another depres- 
sion, tariffs must be pushed 
down. Write to your Congressman. 
Tell him to vote for the continua- 
tion of the Reciprocal Trade Act 
of 1943. This bill is now before the 
House Ways and Means Commit- 
tee, and it provides for the lower- 
ing of tariffs up to 75 per cent of 
foreign countries will make re- 
the rates in effect in 1934, if 
ciprocal concessions.

o 

Infirmary 

To the Editor: 

Recently a Free Press entitled 
"Medical Treatment," which ap- 
peared in the April 5th issue of 
News, was called to my attention. 
Frankly I do not believe that the 
medical staff of Wellesley Col- 
lege needs to be defended by me 
or by anyone else. Its thoroughly 
professional attitude, its complete 
efficiency, its untiring devotion to 
the welfare of the college com- 
munity are its own defense. How- 
ever, 1 do feel that the sentiments 
expressed in that letter were 
prompted by woeful miscompre- 
hension or just plain ignorance, 
and that I, as a layman, having 
spent the greater part of my col- 
lege career under the care of Wel- 
lesley's doctors and in the In- 
firmary, am obligated and quali- 
fied to clear up some of the doubts 
which seem to be troubling the 
student body. 

What "46" considers the "very 
unfortunate attitude of the whole 
medical staff of the college" hap- 
pens to be the attitude of the med- 
ical profession in general. Medical 
records are sacred and private. I 
have never known them to be put 
at the patient's disposal for read- 
ing matter. Often the Wellesley 
reports contain confidential in 
mation which parents have sub- 
mitted to the doctors. It stands to 
reason that a layman reading a 
medical report will not und( rstand 
—or even worse — will only half 
understand the data printed there 
and can easily plunge herself into 
confusion with vague im- 
aginings. If a student is perfectly 
healthy, there is no reason why 
she should read her medical rec- 
ord. There are other outlet, 
her intellectual curiosity at Wel- 



lesley College. If a student has 
some physical handicap, she is 
given a re-examination; she can 
discuss her problems "honestly 
and frankly"' with the staff; and 
the doctors in turn do their best 
to formulate some health plan 
that will enable her to carry on a 
normal college career. 

I have been in many hospitals, 
and I have yet to find one in which 
the nurses broadcast the patient-' 
temperatures. If a student is in 
the Infirmary, she can rest as- 
sured that she will be released as 
soon as the doctors think she is 
well and able to care for herself. 
It is perfectly ridiculous to be- 
lieve that the doctors are anxious 
to keep healthy students hospital- 
ized — taking beds away from 
people who are really "ill and 
making more work for an already 
over-taxed staff. 

If "there is not a great deal of 
confidence on the part of the stu- 
dent body in the Infirmary," that 
lack of confidence is due to ignor- 
ance on the part of the student 
body. During the long months I 
spent in the Infirmary, I saw many 
young people whose college car- 
eers—whose entire lives— might 
have been ruined had it not been 
for the medical skill, the sympa- 
thetic understanding, the untiring 
efforts, the complete devotion of 
the doctors and nurses. As one of 
those students who owes her fu- 
ture to the Wellesley medical staff, 
I can only express my gratitude 
by begging other Wellesley 
dents to discover the true facts 
and reasons before criticizing un- 
justly. 

Sincerely yours, 
Elizabeth Birdsall, '43.

WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. APRIL 26. 1945 



Miss Manwaring Speaks 
Before Wellesley Clubs 



Miss Elizabeth W. Manwaring, 
Chairman of the Department of 
English Composition, returned two 
weeks ago from addressing the 
Wellesley Alumnae Clubs of Buf- 
falo, Detroit, Cincinnati, Colum- 
bus, and Cleveland. The article 
in the Wellesley Alumnae publica- 
tion on the prize winners of the 
Dodd Mead Intercollegiate Fel- 
lowship, Catherine Lawrence '43 
and Mary Vardoulakis '44 had 
aroused such interest in Welles- 
ley's Department of English Com- 
position and in the changes in 
teaching composition at Wellesley, 
that at the suggestion of President 
McAfee and Mrs. Katharine Tim- 
berman Wright, President of the 
Alumnae Association, Miss Man- 
waring addressed the clubs. 

"Preparation for Writing in a 
Changing World" was the title of 
her address to the Buffalo and 
Columbus clulis and "Recent Edi- 
tions to the Wellesley Bookshelf" 
was the title of her address to 
the others. The first lecture dealt 
with the enormously increased op- 
portunities for women in journal- 
ism, social agencies, such as gov- 
ernment agencies and radio and 
Red Cross. The second mentioned 
books by Wellesley authors which 
have appeared in the last 15 
months: One Day on Beetle Rock, 
by Sally Carrigher (pen name of 
Dorothy Wagner ex-'22), Knopf; 
The Private Adventures of Cap- 
in in Sham, by Edith Foley Shay 
'15, collaborating with Katherine 
Smith (Mrs. John Dos Passos), 
Houghton Mifflin; Tin Narrowing 
Wind, by Catherine Lawrence '43, 
Dodd Mead; and those which will 
appear in the next few months: 
Home to India, by Vasanthi Rama 
Rau '44, Harpers; and These 
Many Roots by Mary Vardoula- 
kis '44, Dodd Mead. 

Entertained in Buffalo 
In Buffalo Miss Manwaring 
dined with Mildred Miles Jaffe 
'22, a member of the Middle Tem- 



ple, London, and the New York 
State Bar. At a supper meeting 
in Detroit she was entertained at 
the home of Charlotte Henze 
Decker '13. The C. G. president 
of 1920, Charlotte Hassett Tos- 
bach, was present. 

In Cincinnati she was the guest 
of Janet Callahan '41, now a re- 
porter on the Cincinnati Fust. At 
B luncheon given by a classmate, 
Mrs. Allen Collier '02, Miss Man- 
waring met Mr. .Murray Season- 
pood whose Godkin lectures at 
Harvard are used in our Political 
Science courses. At the Cincin- 
nati Art Museum she saw the ex- 
hibition of Crit ceSj under 
the guidance of a former student 
whose husband, W. H. Siple, is 
the director of the Museum. A 
supper club meeting was held at 
the home of Mrs. Barnard 
Schwartz '30. 

Guest of Mrs. Wright 
In Columbus, Miss Manwaring 
was the guest of Mrs. Wright. 
The club meeting was held in the 
noon at the home of Hazel 
Sharrard Kaufman ex-'15. Mrs. 
Leslie Bigelow '05, President of 
the Club, gave a luncheon at the 
Country Club at which Dr. Boyn- 
ton Merrill, a Wellesley trustee; 
Dr. Howard L. Bevis, President 
of Ohio State University; Mrs. 
Bevis, and Mr. Samuel Shellabar- 
ger, head of the Columbus School 
for Girls and the author of Cap- 
tain from Castile were among the 
guests. She was entertained at 
supper by Professor and Mrs. 
Walley, whose daughters, Kath- 
arine '48 and Alice '46, are at 
Wellesley. In Cleveland a dinner 
of executive officers preceded an 
evening meeting at the home of 
Mrs. Raymond Hengst. 

Miss Manwaring said the meet- 
ings were well attended by alum- 
nae, and that everyone felt an ex- 
treme interest in the affairs of 
the college. 



Clothing Drive - 

(Continued from Page 1) 
in Europe a wardrobe consists of 
a set of threadbare rags. 

The United National Clothing 
Collection, headed by Henry Kai- 
ser, will get those clothes from 
us to them. All we are asked to 
do is hand them to the collectors. 
One person on each corridor of 
every house will collect the cloth- 
ing. On Friday, April 27, the 
articles will be taken to the Green 
Lounge and piled by houses for 
all to see which house has been 
most generous. Saturday morn- 
ing the expected 8000 pounds will 
be taken down to the Wellesley 
town center. 

Get your clothes out ahead of 
time and tie all shoes in pairs. 
Any articles large or small will 
be of great help to the destitute 
who receive them. 

The Wellesley College Collection 
will be conducted by the War Ac- 
tivities Committee. Nancy Kee- 
gan '46, Head of Salvage this 
year, and Harriet Fenn '47, Head 
of Salvage next year, are in 
charge. The house reps will see 
that each house donates as much 
as possible. 

The Wellesley College Library 
will hold a display of books and 
pamphlets dealing with conditions 
in Europe. 

It is up to every Wellesley girl 
to pitch in and swell the National 
Collection with her donations.

Connors Urges 

Participation 

In Government 

"You can only hope to run the 
mechanism of politic* by setting 
in there and pitching/ 1 said 
Margaret Connoi . Democratic 
idate "i* the nationally hu- 
nt Connora-Lui t of 
the Fourth Congressional District 
In her talk 
On "Women in Politics," Moinlay 
Miss Connors urged partici[> 
of women in politics. Said 
Connors, "There li a difference in 
' woman's way in and out of poli- 

nid man'-, way and th 
due to the fact thai women have 
houldered the full responsi- 
bilitiea of citizenship." 

Miss Connors defined politics 
broadly, saying th "th< 

way in which and the organiza- 
tion by which government works." 
She said that although many wo- 
men have neither the time nor 
the interest to run for office, 
they may be active in politii 
being active in the government in 

the community, such afl working 
in the League of Women Voters, 
on the Community Chest, and on 
government boards. 

The problem of party member- 
ship was also discussed. Miss 
Connors deplored the pre 
feeling in this country that "poli- 
tics means anything unph 
about government." She said that 
since parties performed the im- 
portant function in this country 
of nominating and often electing 
the people's representatives, "ii 
is important that parties be dem- 
ocratic in structure," and if we 
want to correct the government 
in parties, the way to do so is to 
get in the party and work for 
improvement. "Every active citi 
zen," said Miss Connor.-, "should 
contribue more to his party 
than voting on election day." 
hould work for the nomi- 
nation of candidates in the first 
place. 

What Parly? 
"The question of what party to 
join involves many considera- 
tions," said Miss Connors. First, 
you should decide what kind of 
government you want and then 
examine the platforms, leaders, 
and records of the parties to 
which one agrees with the ideals 
you consider important. "If 
work for a minor party," said 
Miss Connors, "you'll be wasting 
your time if you're looking for a 
job or the immediate implem 
tion of your ideals, but not if you 
believe that the opinion of a mi- 
nority in the long run influences 
the opinion of the majority." 
Miss Connors did not believe that 
this was the difference between 
,an opportunist and a person of 
principle, but merely two differ- 
ent ways of achieving the same 
end. 

Miss Connors graduated from 
Wellesley in 1935 with honors,

Remedy Negro Problem 
With Political Action 

Speech by Barbara Scott to Mademoiselle, College Forum, N. Y., April 7 

Problems of the Negro 
To discuss the problems of thir- 
teen million people — one-tenth of 
a nation— in ten minutes is rather 
a large order. So I have limited 
my discussion to one phase, the 
application of political ad ion. For 
many years it was thought that 
if any problem existed, and many 
people refused to admit that it did, 
as best to keep it under cover. 
But in recent year > fcence 

has been more and more widely 
• nizcd. This new trend of 
bringing the problem into the open 
healthy Blgn of social advanee- 
Bccompanied a gen- 
eral trend of popular political ac- 
tion. The two, I feel, go hand in 
hand, and the applic.it ion of politi- 
k t ton v, ill eventually help solve 
the Negro problem. 

Two Basic Problems 
Perhaps two of the basic prob 
I. in of the Negro are economic 
and educational discrimination. 
When combined, they form a vici- 
ous circle. The Negro finds him- 
self unable tn i" i economic s se- 
of job discrimina- 
tion; he n Ice a job at low 
His children are then 
d to leave school at an early 
age to contribute to the family 
income. Since the standard of 
ition I "i Hie Negro child in 
the South (and the bulk of t la- 
Negro population is in the South) 
is so much lower than even the 
low standard set for the south, m 
white child, lli<' Negro child is un- 
der ;i definite handicap, both edu- 
nally and economically. His 
Inadequate education prevents him 
from getting a better-paying job. 
This situation is not limited to the 
h Imt also exists in the North. 
No mattei whi re he turns in the 
economic world, the Negro work- 
er faces discrimination. As the 
old snying goes, he is "the last to 
be hired and the first to be fin 
Once hired, his opportunity for 
"upgrading > more limited 
than that of white workers in sim- 
ilar jobs, a good example of this 
■ i <ii elimination was 'the Phil- 
adelphia Transit Company strike 
last summer, when the > 

of transit employe) d to 

work lieeau.se six qualified Negro 
laborer v. ■ raded" to con- 

ductors. The alleviation of this 
ii nation was the >•<■ all Ol com 
bined union and government ac- 
tion. 

FEPC Aids Negro. 

During the war, ec me dis- 
crimination has been affected to 
a greal III by the Fair Em- 
ployment Committee. 

The formation of this committee 

was the resull ni' direct political 

ore. Although an employer 



cannot be forced by law to em- 
ploy anyone he doesn't wish to 
hire, an FEPC discourages the 
more blatant discrimination. This 
Committee has the power to in- 
tigate any complaint in a gov- 
ment contract plant «>i discrim- 
ination hecause of race, religion 
or national origin. It has auth- 
ority to issue orders which can, 
if necessary, be enforced by the 
President with the aid of the 
Army. Mere investigation by the 
FEPC has been affective in ending 
discrimination in 40 percent of 
cases; issuance of an FEPC order 
has heen required in 12 percent 
of cases; and in only 3 percent 
has action by the President been 
necessary. The FEPC has not only 
been a help to workers in minor- 
ity groups but has also played 
a large part in easing the labor 
shortage in war industries. 
Discrimination Reduced 
As I said, the formation of this 
Committee was the direct result 
of political pressure. Its continu- 
ance has been the result of politi- 
cal pressure. Its future as a per- 
ot organization will depend 
on political pressure. Although 
this may be but one step in the 
breaking down of economic dis- 
crimination, it shows the kind of 
thing that political action can do. 
As a result of the pressure being 
ht on Congress at the pres- 
ent time to create a permanent 
FEPC, several state legislatures 
have proposed state FEPC laws. 
York has already passed its 
Ives-Quinn law; New Jersey, 
Afasaachusetl , Connecticut, Penn- 

Mia. Illinois, California, In- 
diana and Ohio are now consider- 
ing similar bills. If these bills 
their respective state legis- 
latures, the breaking down of 
economic discrimination will not be 
just a wartime measure, but a 
permanent step in the solution of 
the Negro problem. Whether 
these bills pass, or not, will de- 
pend on the amount of organized 
political pressure brought to bear 
bate legislators. 

Schools Inadequate 

As I have pointed out, the 
limitation Of economic opportunity 
iosely connected with the lim- 
itation of educational opportunity. 
Let us look at a typical Negro 
school in the South. It is com- 
posed of one small room with four 
windows. The equipment consists 
of one wooden stove, rough bench- 
es without backs, a cracked, black- 
pamled wall which serves as a 
blackboard. This is the institution 
of learning for thirty-six children, 
aged six to sixteen. There are 
live hooks for all thirty-six, one 
a geography published in 1880. 
The teacher, who is sixty years

College Forum 
Airs Views on 
World Affairs 

Mademoiselle held its -econd An- 
nual College Forum on "The Fruits 
of Victory. 1910 VB, 194 - -?" in 
New York, April 7. Will 
was represented among the speak- 
ers by Capt. McAfee, who spoke 
on education, and Barbara Scott 
'4. r ). who discussed "The Problems 
of the Negro." The purpose of 
MademoUelle'e forum was to bring 
college women and experts to- 
gether in discussion of world prob- 
lems with the hope of stimulating 
the students to thought and to 
action. Among representatives 
from the sixteen Eastern women's 
colleges, Barbara Scott '45, Vir- 
ginia I in ild '46, Mary Alice Cul- 
len '4G, and Mary V. "Hickman '46 
attended the Forum from Welles- 
ley. 

Thf three panels of this year's 
political forum concerned "Return 
to Normalcy, Picture of Post War 
L919", "194 --?". and "194--? anil 
the Campus". Lt. John Mason 
Brown acted as chairman of the 
panels. Men and women expert 
in their fields discussed world 
problems in ten minute surveys 
followed by student discussion. 
This brevity of speeches permitted 
the Forum to cover a wide range 
of subject matter. 
Fditor of New Republic Speaks 
Speaker of the first panel was 
Bruce Bliven, President and Ed- 
itor of The New Republic, who 
discussed the issues which proved 
primary stumbling blocks to the 
peace-makers of World War I. 
First, Mr. Bliven stated in spite 
of claims, the worl was not yet 
ready for the idea of world peace; 
secondly, the leaders of some of 
the great powers did not sincerely 
desire the success of the peace 
league, but, accepting i.t in de- 
ference to Wilson, were assuming 
its failure. Thirdly, through the 
mechanism of treaty forming, the 
League of Nations was bound to 
the unworkable Peace Treaty, and 
fourthly, the nations did not at- 
tempt to settle decisively the con- 
tin it between collective security 
and imperialism. Mr. Bliven ex- 
pressed his confidence that if the 
people of the world so desire, they 
can overcome these past stumbling 
blocks in forming the peace of the 
future. 

Unit, moisells's second panel on 
"194--?" opened with a discus- 
sion of religious and racial pre- 
judices. Barbara Scott's speech on 
the "Problems of the Negro" is 
printed on this page. Everett Toss 
Clinchy, President of the National 
Conference of Christians and Jews 
spoke of religious discrimination. 
Speaking of "The Place of Min- 
ority Political Groups", Lisa Ser- 
gio, radio news commentator, made 
a plea to America to rise above 
individual group differences and 
desires, and concentrate on the 
universal elements in democracy. 

Professor Walton Hamilton of 
Yale School of Law discussed 
"Laissez-faire or Government Reg- 
ulation". Carl Van Doren, author 
and lecturer, delivered the lunch- 
eon address on "Defeatism". We 
must avoid, Mr. Van Doren urged, 
a feeling that peace is impossible, 
and at the same time must not 
judge the inarticulate mass of 
people solely by the articulateness 
of a few. 

Dr. Mead Discusses Social 
Responsibility 
Dr. Margaret Mead, Associate 
Curator of the American Museum 
of Natural History, spoke of 
"Social Responsibility Toward Our 
Fellow Men." Since our country, 
said Dr Mead, has the particular 

y of having developed the 

United States of America, we are 
the ones who must have confidence 
in the possibility of a United 
States of the World.

Scotty 



Despite the fact 
[that Barbara 
Scott '45 claims 
she used up all 
(her energy Fresh- 
man year doing 
I those traditional 
Wellesley feats of 
walking around 
the laks, climb- 
the Tower, 
d swimming in 
the pool, she 
seems to have 
saved up enough for the rest of her 
college career. Her job as Head 
of Forum this year should be 
proof enough, but Scotty doesn't 
stop there. Last October she went 
to the He mid Tribune Forum in 
New York and this semester she 
has just returned from making a 
speech for Mademoiselle on "The 
Negro Problem." And somehow, 
. finds time every Friday 
night to go into Boston's U.S.O. 

In the past, that is, Junior year, 
she was Head of Publicity for 
Junior Show, Head of Debating, 
Tower's Junior Council member, 
and the student representative on 
the Mayling Soong Foundation. 
In the immediate future, May 23, 
she will be interviewed over 
WQXR in New York— a result 
of her Mademoisi He speech. Scot- 
ty says of the more distant fu- 
ture, "I'm in a quandary; it'll 
either be law school or a job, and 
probably it'll be law school with 
emphasis on legal research and 
labor law." 

"I haven't had any hobbies since 



I collected miniature animals when 
I was a kid, which has no hidden 
significance at all," she said, then 
added as an afterthought, "I was 
terribly disturbed when I found 
out in Psych, that not having any 
bobbies is a sign of retarded de- 
velopment." Right now Scotty has 
two pandas named Fuji and Ya- 
ma, and Earl Browder — a chintz 
elephant who passes down the line 
of Forum Presidents. 

A political Science major, Scotty 
admits, "My interests are strictly 
in the social sciences. I took 
just enough else to meet all the 
requirements." Scotty answered 
a question about music with "I'm 
a monotone. I took piano lessons 
for ten years and I can't play a 
note, but I like to listen, espe- 
cially to Gershwin." 

After Scotty had made the rash 
statement that she has led a very 
unexciting and uninteresting life, 
she qualified it by remembering 
the Democratic Convention of last 
summer which she attended, and 
all the doings of Forum in gen- 
eral, especially her opportunities 
of meeting the Forum lecturers, 
Darlington Hoopes, Leverett Sal- 
tonstall and others. 

"You might say that my room 
is always like Grand Cential Sta- 
tion" (that coming from a native 
of Washington, D. C, must have 
its significance). "People are al- 
ways leaving things in my room 
and then coming in to collect." 
The door opened and about three 
fifth-floor Towerites came in, not 
to collect belongings, but bearing 
crackers and lobster paste for af- 
ternoon tea. 



Vandermeulen 
Gives Lecture; 
Last of Series 

Mrs. Daniel Vandermeulen, In- 
structor in the Department of 
Economics, presented a lecture on 
"Post- War Fiscal Policy" yester- 
day afternoon, April 25, at Pendle- 
ton Hall. Mrs. Vandermeulen dis- 
cussed inflation, public debt, tax- 
ation, and private and government- 
controlled business in the post-war 
period. 

Yesterday's lecture was the last 
of a series of five presented by 
members of the Department of 
Economics during the year. The 
series was designed primarily to 
introduce students of Economics 
101 to the department and to cur- 
rent economic problems. 

"The Functions of a Price Sys- 
tem," "Inflation," "The History 
of Advertising," and "The Future 
of Social Security" were the topics 
of the four previous lectures given 
by other members of the depart- 
ment. 

labor in the post-war period, Dr. 
Raymond Walsh, WMCA radio 
news commentator, pointed out 
that the greatest contribution the 
U. S. can make to world peace is 
the production of a state of eco- 
nomic stability in our own country. 

"World Security and the United 
States" was the next topic of 
panel discussion. Mrs. Vera Mi- 
cheles Dean, Research Director of 
the Foreign Policy Association 
spoke of the value of Dumbarton 
Oaks agreements. Dr. Mabel 
Niwcomer, the only woman dele- 
gate to Bretton Woods, who has 
recently given a Forum lecture 
here at Wellesley, discussed the 
vital importance of such an agree- 
ment as Bretton Woods for any 
peace plan which will be attempt- 
ed. Representing the League of 
Women Voters, Mrs. B. Mahon 
spoke of "Citizen's Responsibility". 

As opening speaker of the 
Forum's third panel, Capt. Mc- 
Afee discussed "Post War Educa- 
tion". Capt. McAfee stated that 
she was impressed by present 
higher education, but in analyzing 
education for strengthening in the 
post-war period, ^he -tressed a 
need for "resilient creatures" who 
Can accept responsibility. 



Dr. Merrill to Speak 
At Chapel on April 29 

Dr. William P. Merrill, pastor 
emeritus of the Brick Presbyterian 
Church of New York City, will 
lead chapel Sunday morning, April 
2!). A communion service will fol- 
low the regular service. 

President of the trustees of the 
Church Peace Union since 1915, Dr. 
Merrill is the author of several 
religious books in addition to the 
hymns "Rise Up, O Men of God" 
and "Not Alone for Mighty Em- 
pire." A graduate of Rutgers, he 
holds degrees also from Union 
Theological Seminary, New York 
University, and Columbia Univer- 
sity. 

Before entering the Brick Pres- 
byterian Church, Dr. Merrill was 
pastor of churches in Chestnut 
Hill, Philadelphia, and Chicago.

Connors Interview - 

(Continued from Page 1) 
mean the abolition of the maximum 
eight hour day and of other pro- 
tective labor laws which are ap- 
plicable to women and children 
only. Congress is opposed to the 
amendment, but could not avoid 
dealing with it. "Everytime a 
Congressman opened his door," 
Miss Connors laughed, "there was 
'Women's rights' on the door- 
step.' " 

Many states, Connecticut as an 
example, have been introducing 
many liberal reform and social 
welfare bills The influence of the 
New Deal legislation, whether op- 
posed or accepted, has brought a 
lot of this about, Miss Connors be- 
lieves. "The F.E.P.C. bill in Con- 
necticut will probably be passed 
by the Senate this week. So far, 
the Governor hasn't come out for 
it or opposed it; but now, he'll 
have to show his hand." Miss 
Connors does not think that the 
1 onnecticut House of Representa- 
tives will pass the liberal bills in- 
troduced in the Senate— including 
the F.E.P.C. bill. 

Regarding the 1948 election, Miss 
I .Minors said, "Truman will prob- 
ably be renominated by the Demo- 
cratic Convention— but won't be 
elected." Wallace, she feels, does 
not have a chance for the nomin- 
ation because of his liberal odeas 
and his refusal to compromise on 
them." 

Miss Connors does not think that 
Dewey will be the Republican 
presidential candidate in '48. Stas- 
sen, she thinks may be a potential 
candidate although there is no defi- 
nite trend in his direction. 

As for Miss Connors' future in 
the political limelight, her enthu- 
siasm has not died out — or even 
heen discouraged by her defeat 
last fall. She still has great hopes 
and plans for a successful future 
in politics — not only for herself, 
but for all politically ambitious 
women.

haking the foundations of 
English Composition 207 (1 
Writing) al a of all sec- 

tions of that course Tuesday 
ninp, Apnl 17, at the Recreation 

Buihling. 

The Composition Department 
had planned this fully. 

How were they to hand OUt the 
red question for the exam 
in the mosl painless fashion? 
,,r all, they decided coffee 
and cake would be a good thing. 
Then Miss Michael and Miss Berk- 
man invited Mr. Nabakov to come 
ami make the fateful announce- 
ment as painless as possible. Stu- 
dents of 207 agreed that lie ful- 
filled hi in admirably. 
Reads Unpublished Story 
Mi. Nabokov read aloud one of 
unpublished short stories, 
which he named "Double Talk." 
It was the story of a man who 
had an unknown namesake, and 
the troubles and adventures into 
which he was thrown because of 
this unhappy coincidence. After 
he had finished, there was a 
lengthy question period. 

"I get an idea," said Mr. Na- 
bokov, "and I live with it for a 
long time, perhaps a month. Af- 
ter that time, 1 simply have to 
record the words on paper." An 
uneasy titter rippled about the 
room. "You mean you just sit 
down and — " an unbelieving stu- 



dent began. •■No," interrupted 
Mr. Nabokov. "I never sit. 1 
lie in bed. Sitting up I

toward a lamp. " tance, 

look at that lamp. What is the 
first thought that comes into your 
mind?" "Oatmeal," replied a near- 
by listener. "Fine, fine." he said. 
"At one time in your life, you 
probably ate too much oatmeal. 
There is a story." 

Mr. Nabokov has been using 
English as a medium of writing 
only four years, and he claims 
that this is quite a handicap to 
him. His publishers, however, do 
not seem to share his views, for 
his stories have received wide ac- 
claim, and have appeared in the 
Atlantic Monthly and other pub- 
lications. He has also written 
novels, which have appeared in 
Russian, and poetry in both lan- 
guages.

pealing." Each girl made four 
drawings — one of each scene— and 
was given for her final work the 
scene on which she had done the 
best job. Just before Long Week- 
end color sketches were made, and 
over the vacation Miss Abbott had 
these made into slides. 
' When the girls came back to 
class, Miss Abbott projected each 
scene on the boards on which the 
final murals would be painted, and 
the artists traced around the out- 
lines of the projections. This 
device saved the class many hours 
of blocking off their boards and 
sketches. 

Color Planning 
The class spent much time plan- 
ning the color make-up of the 
murals to blend with the pale 
,, walls of the Well and with 
one another. Mixing the colors 
absorbs much time and effort for 
each shade must be exactly cor- 
rect before it can be applied to 
the permanent design. 

Painting these murals has been 
the class "project" for Art 208 
this year. In other years, "proj- 
ects"" have included illustrations 
for books, decorative sculpture. 
and other forms of painting for 
public enjoyment. The murals will 
be put up in the Well as soon as 
they are finished, and when a car- 
penter can be hired to do the 
necessary work.

the approach of peace, Miss Mc- 
Afee stated, the Endowment Fund 
will once again become very ac- 
tive. The Head of House to take 
Mrs. deMorinni's place will not he

It was the same sad sophomore 
who (a) tried and tried to think

knows that there is no innate 
pr< judioe. It is acquired through 
the teachings of the family, the 
community and the school. Real- 
ization of this led to the develop- 
ment of the well-known Spring- 
field Plan. In Springfield, Massa- 
chusetts, the school hoard ch: nged 
Curriculum to show the con- 
tributions which minority groups 
have made to the community. Be- 
fore the development of the plan, 
i in BChool child may have been 
told dogmatically about brother- 
hood, but under the Springfield 
plan, he sees the constructive re- 
sults of democracy in action The 
breaking down of prejudice is not 
confined to the school curriculum, 
but is carried into the community 
through the Parent-Teachers' As- 
sociation and other civic groups. 

Such a plan could not have been 
begun without political action by 
Hi, local citizens. Citizens' groups 
in other cities are studying the 
Spi ingfleld Plan, with the idea of 
putting similar ones into opera- 
iiim in their own communities. 

The twofold use of education, 
the raising of the educational 
standard of the Negro child and 
the destruction of prejudice in all 
school children, can thus be made 
i ve as a further step in the 
: olution of the Negro problem, 

Political action as applied to 
omic and educational discrim- 
ination may not be a radical or 
revolutionary method of solving 
the race problem. But, it seems 
to me, that when backed by or- 
ganized community spirit, legal 
can be very effective. Popu- 
lar political action in all fields is 
becoming more widely accepted as 
a normal step in the democratic 
process. It seems logical and hope- 
ful that it should be applied to 
one of the biggest problems of the 
nation — the Negro problem.

Lettuce, Dreams, Gravy Imperil 
Planning on C A Spring Weekend 



The three C.A. Board members 
and Mr. Gale tried not to act too 
surprised when a little man whom 
they asked said that the huge. 
'ized-loohmg building over 
there was their lodge for the an- 
nual C.A. Spring Weekend held 
April 21 and 22. They had ex- 
pected a cozy cabin in the woods, 
but this was the Girl Scout Lodge 
at Cedar Hill. They had followed 
a map drawn by a member of Out- 
ing Club who said it was only a 
short distance. So, undaunted by 
appearances, they went inside to 
wait for the rest of the week- 
enders to arrive by bus. 

Entering the building, appro- 
priately called "The Rookery," 
they found a room, "big enough 
for a swell barn dance" accord- 
ing to Hope Freeman. It was 
here that they were to spend most 
of their weekend, blanketed in 
smoke (the draft on the fireplace 
didn't work), trying to avoid the 
winds of a Massachusetts April. 
By six o'clock, those who had 
ad the bus arrived, complete 
with blanket rolls a la Wellesley 
towels. 

Gala Evening 
Supper was a happy occasion, 
for they just made believe that 
the head of lettuce for the salad 
really was lettuce and not the 
cabbage they had brought along 
by mistake. Having satisfied their 
appetites, they settled down to an 
evening of discussion and plan- 
ning, not minding too much the 
janitor who pictured himself a 
guardian angel and constantly put 
more wood on the smoking fire, 
1 1 creetly asking for his money 
in return for this unsolicited help. 
So engrossed were the girls in 
plans that they did not ad- 
journ the meeting on Mr. Gale's 
departure for the security of Wel- 
lesley, but after a brief intermis- 
sion for interpretive modern danc- 



ing by the more aesthetic of the 
group and a change to PJ's, the 
discussion went on until 1:00 a.m. 
when Kay Warner asked for a 
vote, and gettijig no response, 
fpund herself the only member 
awake. The meeting was ad- 
journed for lack of a quorum, and 
the seven weekenders settled 
themselves to a night of seeing 
who could get the most of the 
forty blankets. 

Some time during the night 
Ginny Beach dreamt that it was 
tradition for the new C.A. Board 
to do away with the old presi- 
dent. Who would save Julie 
Burnet the trouble of taking a 
general?? Just as the crucial mo- 
ment of decision arrived, Packy 
turned over in her sleep and mut- 
tered, "Vice president, vice presi- 
dent." Not that she has homi- 
cidal tendencies or anything. 
Sunday a Busy Day 
Up again at 7 o'clock, some 
took tramps through the woods, 
or tried to find their way through 
the maze of hedge constructed to 
baffle Girl Scout campers. It 
seemed to fulfill its purpose on 
college students too. Mr. Gale 
arrived, and led the Sunday ser- 
vice — before breakfast!! His re- 
quest for strong coffee on finish- 
ing was filled with a truly potent 
brew. 

With a few stretches and good 
times for relaxation, the morning 
was spent in planning the pro- 
gram and purposes for next year. 
Dinner, prepared by two fresh- 
men, was good despite the "grim 
gravy" which proved the maxim 
that too many cooks spoil the 
broth. Afterwards reports were 
finished, and some left, while the 
bitterenders stayed to tie up the 
loose threads, eat the left-over 
food, and reflect on the good time 
that they had had.
